@dannyarcher even if we are listening to the same interview, read the same materials, i can't guarantee that you will be able to understand and discern correctly. obviously, your intellectual capacity is different from mine
Hong Leong is the only broker coverage on FLB. Based on their June report, they predicted FLB EPS 26.3sen for FY22 and 26.6sen for FY23. 6 months FY22 EPS almost 18sen. Surely 8sen for remaining 2 quarters are more than achievable. They already have pending orders to fulfill. Strong USD will benefits them substantially as 95% of their sales in USD while 80% of their costs in RM. Why need to rush and queuing to buy USD at money exchange when it is a better bet to place your money with FLB?

Long term plantation outlook aptly encapsulated by UMCCA's chairman Datin Paduka
"Despite the current challenges, UMB believes palm oil’s long-term outlook remains bright. In the foreseeable future, palm oil’s twin status as the vegetable oil with the highest yield per hectare and the cheapest vegetable oil to grow is unlikely to be challenged. }

if life gives you a second chance, an opportunity to go back in time. just a little bit..1 year back. i can bet with much certainty, with hindsight, that the Kuan brothers would not have taken the decision so quickly to expand their capacity. unfortunately in reality, market forces may not work in your favor. because if every of your competitors are buying up land, build factory and expand their production line. you risk being left.
lets take this a lesson to learn about this industry dynamics/landscape. when you have a low barriers of entry, with product commoditization and almost zero product differentiation, low switching costs., etc, the industry as a whole is at risk facing the inevitable negatively skewed imbalances towards the supply-side vs. demand-side forces, due to simple fact of human nature extrapolating the short term massive profit generation induced by the pandemic into the future
2Q GDP was robust, amidst low base effect. But still, growth is projected at the upper range bound of 6.8%. Banks are the best proxy for economic growth. Inflation seems to peak in the US but rising rates will benefit Banks generally on a net effect basis. Previous credit provisioning will see a reversal and thus boost the bottom line. With higher profit, expects higher dividends.
Furthermore, TNG Digital is doing well. Valuations are still reasonable.
Malaysian electricity utility Tenaga Nasional Bhd plans to begin the process next year for a potential US$1 billion (RM4.44 billion) listing of its power generation business, sources close to the matter told Reuters.
In what would be the country's largest initial public offering (IPO) in a decade, TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd, known as TNB Genco, could be valued at about US$4 billion, the sources said, declining to be named owing to the confidential nature of the matter.
Proceeds from the offering will be used to grow TNB Genco's renewable energy portfolio, they added.
Yinson enters exclusivity agreement with bp to reserve FPSO Nganhurra for PAJ project in Angola
inson, through its subsidiary Yinson Acacia Ltd, through its subsidiary Yinson Acacia Ltd, has entered into an exclusivity agreement with bp Exploration (Angola) Limited (“bp”), as the operator of the Block 31 Contractor Group (the “Agreement”) for the reservation of FPSO Nganhurra, a floating, production storage and offloading (“FPSO”) vessel for use in bp’s proposed 10 well subsea Palas, Astrea and Juno Oil Fields (“PAJ Project”) based in Block 31, Angola.
Under the Agreement, Yinson will exclusively allocate FPSO Nganhurra to bp for the PAJ Project until 31 December 2022 with an option for bp to extend until 30 June 2023 whilst the parties negotiate a contract to convert, operate, maintain and lease the FPSO for the PAJ project (the “Lease and Operate Contract”). The Lease and Operate Contract, which is anticipated to include a 10-year fixed term, is expected to be executed by the end of 2024 subsequent to bp reaching final investment decision.
Yinson holds an exclusive purchase option for FPSO Nganhurra until 30 June 2023 with its owners, Woodside Energy and Mitsui E&P Australia Pty Ltd, with an option for Yinson to extend such exclusive purchase option until 31 December 2023.
Yinson Production Chief Executive Officer Flemming Grønnegaard commented, “This Agreement emphasises Yinson’s position as the preferred contractor in executing FPSO redeployment projects, which have significant capex and schedule advantages, for established oil & gas players such as bp. We have recently completed two successful redeployment projects, which are FPSO Abigail-Joseph and FPSO Helang, and the Group is currently engaged in a redeployment delivery for FPSO Atlanta. We are confident that our track record, technical knowledge and experience in this industry will support and fulfil bp’s business needs.”
FPSO Nganhurra has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil per day and was built by Samsung in 2006. The FPSO, which operated at the Enfield field in Australia until autumn 2018, is currently laid up outside Labuan, Malaysia.
Chocolate is one of the most popular sweet treats on the planet. Global annual sales are nearing $150 billion. As consumers in developing countries acquire more wealth, chocolate consumption is rising along with it. Some estimates point to sales of cocoa products reaching $200 billion per year by the end of the 2020s — representing an average annual growth of about 5%.
As part of the consumer staple sector of the stock market, chocolate isn't the highest growth investment theme out there. However, demand for chocolate and other sweets isn't going away anytime soon. In fact, chocolate sales are still rising as consumers in developing markets join the middle class, and previously out-of-reach products such as chocolate become a more regular part of the grocery shopping list.
their capital management strategies is a little bit complicated and not easy to comprehend for a lay person due to their usage of perpetual securities. on paper, the high level of debt will scare you off. unless you care to deep dive and understand their rationale of using these bonds.
i think the main risks investors need to care of is execution risk and counterparty risk. we can't anticipate future risks with much certainty, the only certainty investor can relied on is their track record and reputation over the years. and provided your risk appetite is up for it.
We raise FLB’s FV to RM 2.26 (from RM1.98), ascribing a 8.6x P/E (5Y average) on FY23 EPS of 26.6 sen as we roll over our valuation base year to FY23. We like FLB given its favourable product mix with primary exposure to the US RV market (c.50% of US sales) that commands a higher ASP. The strong USD will also benefit FLB as >95% of its sales are denominated in USD while >80% of the cost is in ringgit.
Currently, FLB has pending orders (until 3Q) with locked in plywood prices hovering near record high. Going into 2QFY22, we believe FLB will likely post stronger QoQ earnings on the back of (i) sustaining or slightly stronger GP margin; (ii) delayed revenue recognition from 1QFY22, and (iii) higher plywood realized price amid rising geopolitical tension.
